Rock the Kasbah Gala

Kristin Cavallari is too evil to wear this cute white dress. j/k

It’s actually a very cute look for her, and she doesn’t usually do cute.

I have compared the dress to the Miu Miu Spring 2008 dress, but I’m not sure if Kristin’s dress is modified or just a very good copy.  I’m leaning towards the latter.

What do you think?

Daisy Fuentes snuggled up to the man who used to be on posters all over my bedroom as a kid – Matt Goss from Bros.

Remember them?

The beautiful actress looked flawless in a peacock Tadashi Shoji halter gown with gathered waist, whilst he looked good in a 3 piece suit.

Lindsay Price was my favourite on this red carpet, as she dazzled in a strapless red Valentino gown.

Talk about owning a look.

Gorgeous.

I really like Lindsay Lohan’s LBD.

It’s the most put together she’s looked in a long while, but she looks like she just woke up.

Estelle is still on top form.

I’m loving her navy satin asymmetrical mini dress which she pairs with glittering sandals and a stack of bracelets.

I’m gonna miss Paula Abdul on American Idol. Her crazy responses were the only thing that kept me watching.

I was surprised by how great she looked at this event wearing a peachy Herve Leger gown, with a jeweled bodice.

Sharon Stone looks to be slipping down the scary slope of animal prints with her reptile print gown.

I knew it wouldn’t be long before she cracked.

Social Events Of The Week

“A Steady Rain” Broadway Opening Night, New York

What does Ellen Barkin, Nicole Kidman and Kyra Sedgwick have in common?

They all love wearing L’Wren Scott’s figure-hugging dresses.

Nicole Kidman has actually worn this black and white trimmed L’Wren Scott Headmistress dress.

Nicole opted for red peep-toes, but Ellen wore t-bar patent Christian Louboutin’s to complete her look.

Hair Magazine Awards, London

UK TV and Radio presenter Lauren Laverne wore a Jonathan Saunders Fall 2009 LBD, which had a wet-look bodice wrapped around stunning embellishments.

I love the her curly cropped bob and her flawless make-up.

Even though I personally don’t like tights, this head-to-toe look really works well for her.

The Richard Nicoll Fall 2009 runway fashion-forward piece has been soften to a pink & nude silk slip dress on Donna Air.

She added grey sandals and a silver statement necklace to complete her look.

Tamsin Egerton looks stunning wearing an Alexander Wang one-sleeved jersey ruched dress, which just goes to prove that Wang’s clothes are desired on both sides of the Atlantic.

It’s getting cooler temperature-wise in London, but thankfully Tamsin didn’t opt for tights.

She instead showed-off her enviable legs wearing gold peep-toes.

VV Brown often wears edgy, unknown designers or a lot of vintage pieces, but on this occasion I can spot an embellished Topshop jacket.

The look is paired with a vintage faux-fur hat, black pants and nude ballet pumps.

Jenny Frost’s dress says one thing, “I want to attention.”

I may have liked the dress if it had fit better.  It just a piece of material hanging from her paired with a black belt.

“UNITE Unveiled: Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion”, LA

‘The Hills’ star Kristen Cavallari looked lovely wearing a lacy nude top with a black leather skirt and nude patent Brian Atwood heels.

I’m very impressed that her flesh coloured bra isn’t immediately noticeable.

If this was Heidi Montag she would’ve won a bright pink bra just to draw attention to herself.

“Rock A Little, Feed A Lot” Benefit Concert, LA

Marcia Cross looked surprisingly raunchy in her Dsquared² embellished top, with James Jean’s “Twiggy” legging jeans.

It’s hard to believe Isla Fisher is a mother of one, because looks so young.

She kept her look super casual wearing a graphic print tee, short black leather skirt and zipper gladiator sandals.

Jenna Dewan opted for a H&M multi-coloured striped dress, paired with black leggings and navy pumps.

02 X Awards 2009, London

Yasmin Le Bon wore a berry velvet suit from her YLB for Wallis collection, paired with a black blouse.

Make-up free but still gorgeous.

The Scene Record Release Party, LA

Selena Gomez is the epitome of chic at her album launch party wearing nude silk top, a chocolate sequin mini skirt and nude patent heels.

The side-parted pony tail gives this look a youthful feel which has been missing from previous looks.

Who Wore Elise Øverland Better? Malin Akerman or Kristin Cavallari

Malin Akerman brought out her hidden sex kitten wearing a metallic Elise Øverland Fall 2009 cold-shoulder mini dress, when she attended the “Svedka Vodka Sessions” event at Private Park in New York back in July.

She kept her look very simple, only opting for lace open-toe booties.

“The Hills” bad girl Kristin Cavallari wore the same dress belted to the Nylon Magazine party last month.

She debuted a new blonder ‘do, whilst pairing a YSL clutch and ankle boots with her look.

I’m all about detail, and the gathered detail on the front of Kristin’s dress is lost when she adds the braided belt, so Malin wins this for me.

Nylon Magazine’s TV Issue Launch Party

Anna Paquin is NYLONs’ September 2009 cover girl and was the guest of honour at this event.

She arrived alongside actor Stephen Moyer wearing a Herve Leroux LBD with black peep-toes.

Her sexy pencil dress had a sheer plunging neckline and sheer long sleeves.

I would’ve preferred this dress to be sleeveless like the dress Megan Fox wore on Letterman.

AnnaLynne McCord also opted for a sexy LBD, but hers was a strapless Camilla and Marc Lotus Frock tulle dress.

I love the playfulness of this dress with the tulle skirt, which suits AnnaLynne as she always seems to be having fun on the red carpet.

The feminine frills were countered with a large studded belt.

I love the pops of colour which added a touch of tangerine and lemon fresh sunshine to her look.

Those of you who purchased the Zara Fall 2009 LBD with pointed shoulders look away now, as Aubrey O’Day might totally ruin this look for you.

The ex-Danity Kane singer wore the form fitting dress, with bright pink peep-toe heels, and shocking pink lipstick.

Apart from Stella McCartney, Jenna Dewan is the only person who has made the dreaded thigh-high boot not look tacky.

Maybe it’s the maroon colour or her ditsy print floral dress, but I really like how she worked these boots.

When I was looking at pictures of Katie Cassidy today, another blonde bombshell came to mind – Charlize Theron.

I’m not saying they look alike, but her hairstyle is very similar to how Theron styles her hair.

My ‘Flavour of the Week’ looked fabulous wearing a one-shouldered animal print Nicole Miller dress with a fan detail on the bodice.

I love the asymmetrical detail on the skirt and the unexpected raspberry Rock & Republic’s “Nika” pumps which brighten up the look.

Animal prints are not easy to pull off, but I think Katie does so very well.

Whilst a lot of people opted for black at this party, Madeline Zima wore a bright orange dress with pink tulle underskirt.

Her stand out dress was paired with a teal clutch and nude peep-toes.

Alison Brie wore an electric blue French Connection Fast Bonny asymmetrical dress which was very popular with UK soaps stars.

Grey accessories completed the look.

It’s Britney b***h.  No actually it’s a blonder Kristin Cavallari.

“The Hills” stars showed of her lighten ‘do as she walked the red carpet wearing a silver metallic cold-shoulder Elise Øverland Fall 2009 dress, paired with some black ankle boots and a black clutch.

I miss cute strappy sandals. Why do ankle boots have to be paired with everything these days?

10.08.09 Best Dressed

2009 Teen Choice Awards – Best Dressed

Best Dressed Award
Alexis Bledel maybe the surprise choice for Best Dressed, but she was totally captivating wearing a stunning blue ‘Opening Ceremony’ dress with a lace yoke and hem which made her blue eyes sparkle.

Her look was paired with Loeffler Randall Genevieve asymmetrical zip sandals.

Risk That Paid Off Award
It seems that Leighton Meester is doing her best to totally separate herself from her “Gossip Girl” character, which is why we are getting edgier looks from her.

The actress opted for a chic black and white striped Louis Vuitton mini dress with a layered skirt which could have gone horrible wrong, but she works it well.

She paired her dress with red Brian Atwood heels which are to die for.

Best White Award
It’s not often we see the sexy side of Jordana Brewster.

I think it’s the power of her white Herve Leger Resort 2010 bandage dress which brought it out in her.

As always, I would have preferred a different colour heel to her black Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard print sandals.

Best Rock Chick Award
Please don’t be surprised that Kristen Stewart is on this list. This may not be to everyone’s liking, but at least Kristen isn’t trying to be someone she’s not.

With terrible mullet forced upon her for her upcoming movie “The Runaways”, I think she makes the best of a bad hair day wearing an edgy Rock & Republic Fall 2009 plunging v-neck dress with a spiked skirt and Jerome C. Rousseau booties.

She tones down the uber sexy dress with a white tank top.

Rihanna will be kicking herself that she didn’t see this first.

Best Brand Ambassador Award
Nikki Reed was flying the flag for Miu Miu wearing a modified dress from their Fall 2009 collection, with a studded Miu Miu clutch and Miu Miu suede cut-out sandals.

I love the modified dress on her as it’s more youthful than the runway dress.

I can picture the runway version being worn by Rachel Weisz or Jennifer Connelly.

Best Re-Run Award
I’m instantly drawn to Audrina Patridge’s Courtney Crawford turquoise patent leather platform pumps, but her purple Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 strapless ruched dress is equally dazzling.

You may remember that Hayden Panettiere wore this same dress recently during “Comic Con”.

Best Embellishments Awards
Emma Roberts’ Monique Lhuillier Resort 2009 white mini dress has an exquisite embellished neckline, which could be easily mistaken for statement necklace.

As always she paired her pretty dress with Brian Atwood black booties.

Best Legs Award
Fergie puts her best foot forward wearing a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 mini dress covered with multi-coloured sequins.

I’m glad she didn’t opt for a boring LDB, but a sexy LBD with some pizazz.

I would have preferred the runway heels though, hers feel really heavy.

Simple Yet Stunning Award
Jennifer Morrison can do flashy, but she’s at her best when she keeps things simple.

The actress looks divine wearing a mint green Missoni Resort 2010 dress with a silver box clutch.

Wish Come True Award
A few years ago I was longing for Vanessa Hudgens to wear a major label and here she is wearing a purple Christian Dior Fall 2009 mini dress.

I love the dress on her, but I just wish she’d left the skirt alone. It would’ve been better cut short to allow it to flow like on the runway, than hemmed up.

Her dress was complemented with purple Brian Atwood pumps and a sliver clutch.

Pretty In Pink Award
Although I feel like I have seen this look many times before on Hayden Panettiere, there’s no denying how cute she looks in her pink Zac Posen dress with her favourite nude Christian Louboutin heels.

Best Floral Award
Ashley Greene was picture perfect wearing a Dolce & Gabbana ensemble including a light blue bustier top and floral print skirt.

I adore her ruby heels and purple clutch which complete her look.

Best Shoes Award
Ashley Tisdale wore a gorgeous wearing a cute Used/Unused bustier dress with Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded peep-toe pumps.

I told you these heels would be a hit with celebrities.

Most Sophisticated Award
At first I was miffed at Cameron Diaz for not showing off her best asset on the red carpet – her legs – but now I have come to realise that Cameron appears to have moved on from that look to a more sophisticated style.

Cameron looked so elegant and sophisticated wearing a grey figure-hugging Alexander McQueen asymmetrical zip dress.

Her stunning Pierre Hardy blue peep-toes are simply divine.

Most Cute Award
Every time I see Brenda Song on the red carpet the first thing I always say is “Ahhhh, she’s so cute”.

The cutie attempted to toughen up her look wearing a black and white Alexander Wang jersey dress with black clutch and black strappy sandals.

Most Interesting Award
Had Keke Palmer not worn the gold sequined bolero I probably wouldn’t have paid much attention to her look, but it’s so eye-catching.

The bolero adds an interesting dimension to her look.

Camilla Skovgaard ankle boots complete the look.

Best High-Street Look Award
Kristen Bell mixed a Topshop black jumpsuit with gold Jimmy Choo Flynn sandals.
